Welding stainless steel generates hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Two technologies were developed to reduce these HAPs. The first, tetramethylsilane is added to the welding shielding gas, and welding proceeds as normal. Reactive oxygen species are consumed, and the resulting metal fume particles are encapsulated. In the second technique, new chromium-free welding consumables are introduced nearly eliminating Cr(VI) in the welding fume.

More about this publication?
  • Original and timely technical papers addressing problems of shipyard techniques and production of merchant and naval ships appear in this quarterly publication. Since its inception, the Journal of Ship Production and Design (formerly the Journal of Ship Production) has been a forum for peer-reviewed, professionally edited papers from academic and industry sources. As such it has influenced the worldwide development of ship production engineering as a fully qualified professional discipline. The expanded scope seeks papers in additional areas, specifically ship design, including design for production, plus other marine technology topics, such as ship operations, shipping economics, and safety. Each issue contains a well-rounded selection of technical papers relevant to marine professionals.
